I’ve been a little silent here, mostly because I post to my page on facebook. You can find me there as “Electric Giraffe” on an artist page.
SO…what have I been up to? Well, 2014 started off with a bang in xmass 2013, with me showing up at a huge candy cane lane out where I live, wearing all my xmass lights and reindeer antlers! That was such a fun gig, watching the kids completely lose it when they saw a 1 ton reindeer walk into their neighborhood!
And just prior to that, I appeared at the first ever San Diego Maker Faire! It was at the Del Mar Fair Grounds and I so hope this event will transform into a full blown Maker Faire for the San Diego area! We deserve it! The organization can be found at http://sandiegominimakerfaire.org/ Please check them out and get involved!
Since then I’ve appeared in several locations recently:
Maker Place, with Brian Salmon having me show up and play music for their open house events. Maker Place is where Lindsay is making me new hexagon Giraffe Spots with their laser cutter.
Washington Middle School where I hung out with their robotics class for an evening.
The Aerospace Museum in Balboa Park! Imagine, me, the Robot Giraffe, in Lindsay’s personal place of worship! After all the years he’s spent in there as a kid, to have me, something he built, featured inside the very same museum! That was a fun day, that will likely lead to something more with the City of San Diego. News to come!
Fox 5 news: I did their morning news show! Take a look here for a fun news segment! http://fox5sandiego.com/2014/03/17/made-in-san-diego/#axzz2wpXAu0je
Plus other appearances at more schools to support their robotics programs.
Maker Faire is also talking about sending me to New York and possibly London! Please wish me luck in getting there!
